This morning is Margaret’s third preliminary exam, the one on comparative literature and critical theory (she’s concentrating on nihilism). This is the last of the closed-room exams; after this one, she has a two-day take-home exam on her dissertation topic.
Send a few supportive thoughts her way, give her spirit a boost as she churns through this phase of the academic gauntlet. She’s coming around the bend, into the home stretch, and we’re cheering her on. Come on, sweetheart!
[After the exam: First reports are positive. Now, for the two-day take-home exam on her special area of concentration!]
